Mia's invitations


Remember Mia's tags...

Here's Mia's invitation...I might make slight changes...or not.
(click on photo for a closer look)

I used Hero Arts digital kit Polky Dots to create my yellow polka dot paper and the sentiment is also Hero Arts. I also used Jen Martakis's Notebook Basics digital kit. I made the rose (out of fimo) and will be adding them to my Etsy shop soon.

She's my little Miss Piggy (from the Muppets)...really...attitude and all! LOL That's the face she makes when I call her Miss Piggy!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a great weekend!

Before I go on about my cards I suggest you pop on over to Mel's blog and check out some major CREATIVITY!!! She used my Babushka digi stamp and well you'll just have to
check it out! ;) Also...I've noticed some people leaving comments that they are called Matryoshka dolls.......people I know they are traditionally Russian MATRYOSHKA dolls but I am CROATIAN!! LOL And my family (along with some other Croatians) like to call them Babushka....I just find it's more fun to say! ;)

So here's a cute birthday card I made using the cupcake from my digi stamp 'Jane's Bakery'.

I used alot of glossy accents on the cherry and stem to keep it strong (to keep the stem from tearing off). The sentiment is Hero Arts.

I found this 'note' card (below) while going through some stuff...I made this years ago for a friend who is the top florist (Feresin) in Zagreb as far as I'm concerned...anyways, they deliver flowers and often need a nice, simple small 'note' card (one-sided) with enough space to write down a message so I made her some and this was one of them....

...which now is the inspiration for my next digi stamp so stay tuned! ;)

I drew this, coloured it, scanned it and then printed it out. I think I was able to fit 6 on a A4 paper.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!

I'm working on those wedding invitations but I can't share that just now but Mia's birthday is in March and so I have started planning her party....she celebrates at preschool and has another one at home with family and her best pal (our neighbour).
I always hand out thank you favours and think that these tags would be cute! I made the button and rose....for her cake I'm going to try to make colourful roses out of marzipan paste...

The 'thank you' sentiment I won on Virginia's challenge.....I love it!!! Thanks! Also Mia got some goodies from Virginia....she was thrilled! ;)

I went to the hobby store to buy some paper and fimo and to my surprise I found these goodies!!! Fiskars puncher and Versa cube ink....only in silver and gold but hey that's a start!!!! I also found this ZIP-IT pencil basically zip the whole thing into can check it out here. Fun!

Edit: My blog/Squigglefly friend Holly suggested that I enter this in the Saturday Spotlight took me a while to figure out where but I found them!

I'm playing along with the 2S4Y challenge this week....I'm pretty sure this is my first circle card?! And I think this card could beat the winter blahs!!! Check out Virginia's challenge! Anyways..I'm hooked! I'm also going to send this card in for Jennifer's Cards for Kids drive.

I printed Spike on white cardstock and yummy K&Company pp and did some paper piecing. I used some glossy accents on his eyes and coloured in his spikes and legs with copics. You can find Spike along with my other digi stamps here at Squigglefly.

And in the spirit of Cards for Kids I'd like to give Spike to 3 people who I will randomly pick. I will announce the winners tomorrow so leave a comment here. I think Spike can put a smile on those adorable faces!!

Have a great day!

A Babushka Valentine and a winner!

Here's my very non-traditional Valentine's Day card using my digi stamp Sasha. I have quite a few friends who don't like the whole red, pink, hearts and lace business.....but I don't think they'd mine a nice non-red/pink Babushka! ;) I on the other hand LOVE all the PINK and RED!!! ;)

I printed Sasha out on different coloured cardstock and cut out the parts I needed and pieced her together.

And now to announce the winner of Olga and Sasha.......
